Not trying to derail the thread, but here is an interesting note:
I don't know the actual model of that jet engine, but it looks like a fairly high bypass ratio turbofan.
In an engine like that, which are the vast majority of commercial jet engines nowadays, a large percentage of the air (and in this case, water),
actually flows around the core of the engine. That huge fan on the front actually acts like a propeller (or a huge ducted fan). The General Electric
GE90, as used on the Boeing 777 has a bypass ratio of 9:1. Meaning that 90% of the air(and the water, in the above video) actually flows AROUND the
turbojet portion of the engine.
Not meaning to detract from the coolness of the "water test" video, I just thought it was interesting.
